Trying to run service but get Authentication failed.....

  • Trying to run service openmediavault-engined restart && omv-mkconf ssh && service ssh restart


    as part of this guide - [GUIDE] SFTP Selective remote folder access to certain users


    want to just have the media folder when using SSH - basically so it works just like FTP


    when I try and run the service this happens.



    $ service openmediavault-engined restart && omv-mkconf ssh && service ssh restart

    ==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.systemd1.manage-units ===

    Authentication is required to restart 'openmediavault-engined.service'.

    Authenticating as: root

    Password:

    polkit-agent-helper-1: pam_authenticate failed: Authentication failure

    ==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED ===

    Failed to restart openmediavault-engined.service: Access denied

    See system logs and 'systemctl status openmediavault-engined.service' for details.


    I've changed the password in First aid and on the web GUI,

    I can login after a reboot too


    I'm a real newbie so any help would be great.
